    Meryl Streep may be the most acclaimed actress working in cinema today, but can she do Strictly? An unfair question, but then the star of The Devil Wears Prada got some equally unfair barracking at the first press screening of The Iron Lady, the controversial – that is, why did they bother at all? – biopic of Margaret Thatcher. Not that Streep gives a terrible performance – no, the posture, the hectoring, the condescension are all spot on – but…

    “The King's Speech”, “The Iron Lady” e “The Queen” ou, como eu gosto de dizer, a trilogia “Eis o porquê de a Inglaterra nunca perder a majestade”. Você pode não gostar da Margaret, mas impossível não admitir que ela é uau. Que mulher incrível!

    Film #29 of the "September 2015 Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!
    #13 A political film!

    I did not expect The Iron Lady to take place in Maggie Thatcher's dementia fueled fever dream. This is a shockingly sympathetic portrayal of a controversial political figure as she reflects on her life. On one hand progressively feminist, but on another hand supporting regressive conservative policies, Margaret Thatcher's career is complex, however the complexity is not explored at length.

    Meryl is magic, and her performance…

    Meryl Streep is fine even though the movie was just good.

    Meryl Streep è riuscita a farmi provare empatia verso la Thatcher. Adesso resta da capire se devo ringraziarla oppure no. Interpretazione da brivido.

    A brilliant portrayal of the most influential woman in British political history; Margaret Thatcher finally gets a fair, extensive and competent analysis of her time in office.
    This is the best performance I've seen of Meryl Streep thus far; from her looks to her voice to her mannerisms, she fully embodies the character of Margaret Thatcher and presents herself with wonderful grace and charm. Like Streep herself, she is a feminist icon (no matter how the left may paint her)…

    Streep gives a powerhouse performance but it's uneven in tone and never really gets around to saying anything.

    It wastes a monumental potential for not focusing on her political life. Meryl Streep phenomenal (as usual) keeps it from being a total bore.

    The look at the life of the first female prime minister throughout her golden days. Highly recommended.
